– MANHATTAN BEACH CIVIC CENTER –
Basta the Bastet, a a modern cat god is based on an Egyptian bastet, the god of war that turned into a god of the house. What better god to greet you when going to get your building permit? In Egyptian times, the bastet had a necklace of jewels. The modern god has a necklace of cell phones and computer parts, and these link to her ear buds. An ancient cat, with ancient cell phones, she was proposed to guard the civic plaza.
